    We had a wonderful dinner at Bristol to celebrate several birthdays in our family (3 in one week). Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Food was cooked perfectly. There was so much food on the mixed seafood platter that I should have split it with someone, but it made for great leftovers for lunch the next day. The piece of carrot cake we got was outstanding and even after five of us had some, there was more than half of it left. If we hadn’t been so full from dinner, I’m sure it would have been devoured! Abraham was our waiter, and he provided excellent service.

    Wow! Blown away by our experience last night. We were celebrating two birthdays and we felt like the red carpet was rolled out for us. John out waiter was amazing. The hostess staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was top notch and every single item we had was delicious. We felt very special and appreciate the fantastic hospitality we received.

    Biscuits served were overcooked and dry/crumbly. The steak and lobster tails were cooked well and enjoyed the seasoning on the steak. Most of the side dishes we had were fine. The asparagus risotto was too cheesy and only had tiny bits of asparagus- my husband thought he ordered the wrong side because it was hard to identify the bits as asparagus . Overall it’s pricey for what you get - quality fair and smallish portion sizes

    The place seemed slow, but the service was crazy slow. I didn't really understand if there isn't to many people here, why the service is that slow. The food was not good and I didn't even finish a couple bites. I don't remember this place being so bad. Last time I will go personal.

    Brooklyn was an excellent server. Went on a concert night with the mindset that they’d be busy and patients would be a must. I was wrong. Everything from start to finish was smooth. Got seated on time, service was excellent and all of the staff seemed happy to be working! Staff morale says a lot these days.

Meat cooked to perfection! Calamari and Oyster Rockefeller were amazing! Do not visit KC without eating at this restaurant.

This service made it so we had a very enjoyable dinner, with no stress. The salmon and the crab cakes were delicious and my friend enjoyed her wine. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

    Menu choices have significantly declined. Menu is much more limited with fewer entree and appetizer choices. Wanted an Old Fashioned with a specific bourbon, which was sitting right on the shelf behind the bar, but because there was an “event” at a nearby venue, they would only serve a premixed version and could (or would) not make it not could I get the typical smoked version. Service was just ok. Waitress actually presented a dismissive tone when speaking to my wife. What used to be a descent quality of food and service has gone downhill significantly. Bristol used to be one of our favorite haunts. No longer… sorry to say.

    Used to love going to this restaurant. I am a member of their rewards program. Last night they had $25 off food purchases over 75. Unfortunately I was unable to use the discount because they comped our dinner. The evening started out well, the waitress took our drink order and when she came back took our appetizer order oysters Rockefeller. Drinks and appetizers were very good. After she came back and took our dinner order. We had lobster bisque to start and ordered another glass of wine. After some time a different server showed up with the soup and since our waitress disappeared we asked her if she would get our glasses of wine that were along time coming. Again after a considerable amount of time with no service we asked the bartender if he would clear our table of the dishes we had from our appetizer. Again after another considerable amount of time we asked another server if she would find our original server, the original server then showed up and we asked if she would check on our dinner. She said it just came up and brought it out to us. My wife had scallops and risotto I had a filet mashed potatoes and a vegetable. All of the food was cold and the steak that was supposed to be medium rare was bloody medium. The original waitress went and got the manager who informed me that he had just plated our dinners and it couldn’t be cold, he then stated that maybe the steak had been put aside and that could be the problem. Cold potatoes cold rare steak and cold veggies after ad long as we waited was inexcusable so I sent my dinner back and didn’t eat, he offered to to fire another steak but after two hours we we just ready to leave. The last and not least problem was the the fruit flies at our table we spent a considerable amount of time swatting them away from our food and drinks. One of the worst experiences I’ve ever had at an upscale restaurant and for sure I won’t be back. Jim Ruhlman

    Unforgivably out of tuna, so I had a filet. Pretty good for a seafood joint. Swordfish was good and sides were excellent. Still can’t quite get over paying over $13 for a shot of whiskey that only costs $22/bottle!

    They have such a great patio so we decided to sit outside as the weather was absolutely perfect. Shared a bottle of pinot grigio along with the crab cake appetizer and the crab stuffed shrimp daily special. The food was all excellent!! (we've never had a bad meal here) The Bristol seriously does have the BEST crab cakes in the city! Pretty quiet overall as it was a Tuesday night, but perfect for my grandmother as she loves to take her time drinking her wine & relaxing before eating. Excellent dining experience for us both! Thank you!

    One table mate scored with the mixed Seafood grill. Another with the plank Salmon. I ordered Scallops which were O.K. but paired with tasteless Risotto. The biscuits were not what I remembered. Rather a dried up, crumbly mess! Perhaps not their best night for those. But two out of three dinners not bad!

    Went here to get a good "Kansas City" steak and it was close to our hotel. I had the petite filet with a side of grilled shrimp. The shrimp were great. The steak was good but severely overcooked past my medium-rare order. It was dried out and not juicy at all - very disappointing. Sides of mashed potatoes and asparagus were excellent. Wife had the cedar planked salmon which she enjoyed. We split a huge slice of carrot cake for dessert and it was excellent.

    I wanted to like this more. The food was just ok, our waiter had issues with service and getting our order wrong and didn’t seem too motivated to correct it. I just feel like with the price I expected better I feel like there are other places you would probably get more bang for your buck.
